theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Trick Daddy scored a huge victory this week when a Federal Court judge ordered the rapper’s passport be returned to him – which was taken away due to unpaid child support debt – so he can travel overseas to perform and make money to pay off his massive debts.
Here’s the backstory: The rapper originally filed for bankruptcy in September saying he had $430,420 in assets but a total of $644,613 in liabilities.
Trick Daddy listed his assets as his Miramar, FL home, ZERO dollars in his bank accounts, $2,500 in household goods, $150 in wearing apparel, $400 in jewelry and 10k stock in his music publishing company Trick-N-Rick.
However, the bankruptcy was dismissed soon after the rapper filed due to the judge denying his confirmation plan, meaning Trick Daddy was still on the hook for his debt without the protection of bankruptcy.
This was a problem for Trick Daddy because he was being sued for foreclosure by Deutsche Bank National Trust Company on September 10th, only 8 days before he filed for bankruptcy.
The bank explained that Trick Daddy took out a mortgage with them back in 2002. However, he was accused of not making payments on the loan since January 2014. The bank demanded he pay the total amount due of $169,621.56 and he be ordered to vacate the property.
Then on March 10th, the judge came back with his decision in the case and ordered Trick Daddy’s home to be foreclosed on and sold off at public auction. He also ordered the rapper to pay a total of $387k+ to the bank.
The home was scheduled to be sold to the highest bidder on April 14th, but the auction was canceled because 2 days before Trick Daddy headed to court and filed for bankruptcy AGAIN.
Due to the rapper filing for bankruptcy … all legal battles are stayed, essentially put on pause – until the outcome of the case.
The court documents showed the rapper owes $57k in back child support, $290k in tax debt and $280k on his Florida home.
Trick Daddy also pleaded with the judge to order the State of Florida to hand over his passport … which they took due to him failing to make child support payments. He explained he needed his passport to perform and make money to pay off his massive debts and save his Florida home from foreclosure.
Here’s the latest: On May 25th, the judge came back with his decision on Trick Daddy’s plea for his passport and sided with the rapper.
The order states that a hearing took place on April 28th in Florida Federal Court and he heard both sides argue about whether or not Trick Daddy should be handed back his passport.
Based on the evidence presented the judge ordered The State of Florida Department of Revenue to turn back the passport to the rapper. The judge clearly agreed that the rapper needed the travel documents to help him earn money to pay off his child support and various other debts.
The rapper’s bankruptcy is still pending in Federal Court.
